PRESENT STATUS OF POLAR NAVIGATION

Flight Lieutenant K. R. Greenaway, R.C.A.F.

Peer Reviewed

Abstract: The development of aircraft has greatly assisted exploration of the Arctic. In the past explorers were carried into the Arctic by ships from which sledge parties set forth to chart the unknown. In the nineteen-twentie and thirties aircraft carried out a number of spectacular Polar flights. However, aerial navigation methods were basically those of marine navigators, and, owing to the increased travel speeds, accuracy of navigation was reduced.
